[ mood | worried ]

hello everyone.

so about three weeks ago, i started my dreads. one by one, slowly. i still only have half of my head done.
i have a RIDICULOUSLY sensitive scalp, so i can only go so far and so fast before i start tearing up or flat out crying. ridiculous? very.

basically, i havent bothered to post pictures because i wanted to make damn sure i didnt turn around and chicken out, having already shown pictures of them. ya know? and i still dont have any pictures (even though i am 100% sure now that i wont chicken out), just because im not on my regular computer right now. but, im hoping i can get an answer to a question, despite not being able to show you my hair.

the largest area of my head that has been done, got done last night. so, these dreads/sectioned parts im talking about are less than twelve hours old.


we have started thin dreads on my hair. about 1in. x 1in. sectioning per dread. sectioning is somewhat planned, because theyre all about the same size, but we arent pre-sectioning them. we are just taking chunks of hair and separating out sections within THAT section, pinning what we arent working with up, one at a time...but, i always look in the mirror to make sure im not going to have too much of a "grid" style head, cuz i dont want that. and so far, all is going well.


all of the little mini parts from the sectioning are very visible and obvious right now. i dont know if its because my scalp is so irritated and red, if its just because they are all so tight at the base right now and havent loosed up there at all yet, or a mixture of both. maybe im doing something wrong? i dont know. its just that even though the sectioning itself isnt grid style, the visibleness of the section is...does that make any sense? i dont know how else to explain it.

as soon as im able to get back home to my computer, ill post a picture or two of my hair, as well.
but, if anyone can help me out before i can do that, that would be great too! im just looking for some reassuance.

i checked the memories and didnt find anything right away about this specifically. if i missed something and this post was pointless, sorry. =P

i just really dont want to constantly be aware of the parts and sectioning on my head. i want it to look natural and awesome and bleh.

thanks for any help, guys.

Dreads, y/n? [05 Oct 2009|03:44pm]
My newest suggestion to everyone who whines to me about what to do with their hair is to do dreads. Usually the response is "Ugh I couldnt pull them off". Well, I wanted to get your opinons of one such nay-sayer. So, what do you think? Can Jamie do dreads?

NPR article [05 Oct 2009|04:40pm]

Apologies if you've seen this already, but it's an article from NPR about librarians being awesome. Scroll down, and one of the pictures has a woman with lovely salt-and-pepper dreads (perhaps a dreadhawk? I can't tell from the angle.)

It feels like it's been awhile, and a friend recently emailed me a bunch of pictures from the end of this summer.
So, I decided to share.

The dreadlocks are 2 years 7 months today! I guess that means photos!

I so need to do a deep clean. That's on my list of things to do this week.

Waaay before dreads!
